iGeneration Rewired

    The iGeneration according to Dr. Larry D. Rosen is rewired a bit different than all generations before them. Rewired: Understanding the iGeneration and the Way They Learn, examines this exciting generation and how they are building the future within the new technology they are growing up with. Is this new social networking without actually being there physically beneficiary? This new world of communication is creating cocoons of isolation where technology if fed like Gerber food for the brain and kids depend less on basic fundamentals of actual interaction where eye contact is made.

      Look around at today’s youth and you can see how technology has changed their lives. They lie on their beds and study while listening to mp3 players, texting and chatting online with friends, and reading and posting Facebook messages. How does the new, charged-up, multitasking generation respond to traditional textbooks and lectures? Are we effectively reaching today’s technologically advanced youth? Rewired is the first book to help educators and parents teach to this new generation’s radically different learning styles and needs. This book will also help parents learn what to expect from their “techie” children concerning school, homework, and even socialization. In short, it is a book that exposes the impact of generational differences on learning while providing strategies for engaging students at school and at home.
